Does feminism mean women masturbating onscreen: CBFC Member Vani Tripathi

June 15, 2018

Vulgar acts are empowerment now! If a man comes in short pant to office/college with revealing frontal part or size of his penis, would that be allowed? Like women do to have body tight clothes focusing on their back, chest, and thighs? That man would be charged under sec 354, outraging the modesty of a woman; what law applies where a woman herself is not modest?

Veere Di Wedding has been making waves since the time the trailer of the movie was released. Women abusing and using cuss words – people hadn’t seen this before in any movie. Some lashed out, some lauded, but the controversy only gained pace after the movie was released.

 

Swara Bhaskar’s masturbation scene is the talk of the town currently. People are opposing and slamming it. That’s not feminism, many people are saying.

 

On this, CBFC member Vani Tripathi has also hit out at Swara Bhaskar who said that scene is rather “empowering”.

 

“Is this what feminism and female empowerment means to some filmmakers? To show women cussing swearing and masturbating? This is nothing but a perverse view of gender equality. Are we going to achieve true liberation for women by talking dirty like men and showing women masturbating on screen? This is trying to achieve equality with men for all the wrong reasons. Gender biases don’t evaporate by showing women doing all the things that men do. This attempt to achieve gender equality through a push towards perversion is a new kind of misogyny. We must fight it before it becomes a norm,” she was quoted as saying by Bollywood Hungama.

 

She furthermore dissed movie promotions in the name of the censor board. She added that no modifications and changes were suggested in the movie. She said this in regard to the speculations being rife that CBFC suggested modifications in the explicits used in the movie.

 

“If filmmakers are going to use the CBFC name wrongly and accuse us of making cuts modifications and bans when there are none, then I am afraid we are going back to the way the censor board used to be 3-4 years ago. I remember filmmakers put stories about 30-35 cuts even before their films were submitted for censor certification,” she added.
